    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at BAE Systems USA.

    Interview

    I had a one hour telephone interview with my prospective supervisor. This was a fairly general question and answer about my previous experiences and skills. Typical questions about why I was leaving my current job. He also asked how I thought I would fit in going to such a large corporate enviornnment from such a small company. I was led to believe that working from home remotely would be acceptable in the event of weather issues. This was soon found to be a problem.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at BAE Systems USA (Lexington, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter, set up in person interview for a few days later (no phone pre-screen). Interview was a 3 person panel, 1 manager and 2 other engineers. Interview was fairly easy as there were no technical questions asked. In the end, a low ball offer that was never moved up on, so I declined.

    The Hiring process was pretty average. I got the phone call about a month after I applied online and the interview was scheduled about a week later. I was interviewed by five people. The questions were mostly similar. They wanted to know more about my experience and asked me questions based off my resumer. After the interview I received the phone call for the job about 2 weeks later.

    The recruiter called and scheduled an interview a day after I applied. The phone interview went well a week ago. Still waiting for a call back, hoping with an offer. The timeframe is unknown at this time as to when the hiring manager will contact the recruiter. Fingers crossed.

    Interview

    Not too many technical questions. Majority of the stuff I already learned in class. Interviewed with a hiring manager followed by 3 engineering leads the following week. Most questions were to probe your personality, get an idea of your experiences working in a group, and a bit about the projects you have listed on your resume (if any).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at BAE Systems USA.

    Interview

    The interview process was very professional. The interview questions were tough, but fair, and were strongly related to the job function. There were none of the generic nonsensical "where do you expect to be in 5 years" questions. The thoroughness of the interview and screening process left me feeling that the managers really care about the quality of the employees they engage.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were directly related to the job and how I would apply certain principles to achieve the best solution. Again, the questions were tough, but fair, and were designed to engage in more of a profession conversation.   Answer Question
